Our Investment Philosophy
Investment markets and asset classes are not created equal. A successful investment for one client may not be efficient for another. That is why our approach is flexible for different clients, embracing a low-cost, structured approach to efficient asset classes, and a more aggressive approach to inefficient asset classes to add excess return.
Our process begins with research, and understanding that small company and value stocks historically offer higher investment returns than large company and growth stocks. We keep an eye on pricing inefficiencies, using proven strategies to exploit such inconsistencies to achieve greater performance.
Risk & Return
Risks are necessary in any investment plan, but every investment should be approached intelligently and at the client’s comfort. We focus on asset classes that offer greater opportunities for excess returns, and never exceed what is necessary to achieve a client’s needs.
We believe in taking a long-term investment strategy, as it has been proven to achieve consistent returns. This long-term view fits with our clients’ futures, placing the emphasis on long-term performance over short-term value add.
Our goal is always to improve a portfolio’s overall risk/return profile. This is why we advocate a diversified approach across the major asset classes.
Operation Costs & Taxes
Long-term investment success relies on lowering the cost of investing. While fund expenses, tax implications, and trading costs should not be the sole drivers of investment decisions, we always consider such expenses to strategically invest.
Competencies & Structure
We believe in a holistic approach to a client’s investment portfolio; one that considers all aspects of a client’s financial situation. All of our advice, solutions, and services are tailored to individual clients to ensure we are helping them achieve their unique objectives.
